ALTON – State Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Alton, and state Sen. Rachelle Crowe, D-Glen Carbon, met with constituents on Thursday in the Wood River City Council Chambers to discuss state and local concerns happening in their district.

“It is important that we travel to different parts of the district in order to reach people who may not be able to travel to our district offices, especially when winter weather may make travel more difficult,” said Bristow. “I appreciate and am thankful for everyone who took time out of their day yesterday to visit and discuss issues in our community that we can work together to address, such as the opioid crisis, high property taxes, and problems that our veterans are facing.”
